Historical Monument

The building called “The red brick office” (aka renga chosha) is the symbol of development in Hokkaido and is a brick building that was completed in 1888. It is built in the neo-baroque American-style and is designated as a National Important Cultural Property.

          Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn.
